Free Comic Book Day - May 3, 2008

Here's an FYI for any of you with children who like comic books. Today is Free Comic Book Day at participating retailers. A nice opportunity for your children (or you and the hubby) to pick up some of their favorite comic books.

At select locations, some of the different comic book creators from a variety of publishers will make special appearances.

Quote from Free Comic Book: "One of the goals of Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is to reach out to those individuals unfamiliar with the comics specialty market, not to mention a comic book shop. So, every year those behind Free Comic Book Day launch a massive promotional campaign that heralds the event and spreads the good word of comics to potential readers everywhere.

The annual event is the perfect opportunity to introduce your friends and family to the many worlds of wonder available at your local comic book store. From super-heroes to slice-of-life to action/adventure and beyond, Free Comic Book Day has a comic book for everyone!"

This is a worldwide event and you can locate a participating retailer by clicking on the "Store Locator" link at their website. For further information on this event visit the Free Comic Book Day website.

If anyone does attend the Free Comic Book Day, please share your experience with us. Have Fun!
